I’ve started running. Yep, that’s right, RUNNING. I have never liked running because the whole time I am doing it all I can think is “I’m running and I can’t breathe.” Supposedly that changes at some point. I am living near memory grove and I like it there, so I have made this little run for myself. Today was day #3 and it was much better than day #2. So we shall see.
The problem with running is that it gives me an excuse to do things like eat a cookie with 500 calories in it. “Hey, I went running today” is my justification. I have not hit that runner’s high thing yet either, most likely because it’s only day #3 and I am still in that walk/run phase. But I am feeling better. I really worked on my breathing today- but I still get a stitch in my right side after a while. Why does this happen? I just ran through it (well then walked when I couldn’t bear it any longer).
My running music mix sure helps motivate. I don’t have the internet so I have to use whatever music I have, but I like it. Sexyback really gets me going, as does a little LCD Soundsystem. Also, there is this Zebrahead song that takes me back to the days when I moved to
So that is my life. I work 12pm-8pm (I know- don’t even get me started). I wake up in the morning and run, get ready for work, work until 8, go home and read. That is my life. I have read 8 books in the past month. Oh and I have started playing The Legend of Zelda again. I am such a colossal nerd. Hopefully I will start being more social and doing “summer” things, but working odd hours and being on call twice a week kinda hinders that a little. Tonight I am going to the movies (Exit through the gift shop NOT Eclipse) and tomorrow I am doing a night hike and a fire and Friday I think I am doing something fun too- so that’s something, right? Right.
But for now I am going to keep on running. Until I get high.
